Akron Bench Warrant Lawyer
Bench Warrant Attorneys Serving Akron, Ohio
A bench warrant is an arrest warrant issued after an individual has failed to appear for a court date or disobeys a subpoena or any other order of the Judge. It gives law enforcement the authority to arrest you and bring you to court and may result in a contempt of court charge. Contempt of court is the willful disregard of a court order and can be initiated when the bench warrant is filed. It can have severe penalties of jail time and fines; therefore it’s important to have legal counsel protecting your rights when dealing with a bench warrant.
Bench Warrant Vs. Arrest Warrant
A bench warrant is different from a general arrest warrant in that you must have failed to appear in court to get one. A general arrest warrant can be issued for anything, such as the police suspecting you are involved in a crime. When you are arrested on an outstanding warrant, the possibility of bail and release depend on the facts of your particular warrant.
